We will be near Pike Place (no S in Pike!!!) for a few days. We are always looking for the weirdos, revolutionaries, and rogues who are trying to make their own stamp on the world. Are there any unusual places to check out in the downtown area?

 

Thanks!


Blessed are the cheesemakers.

You are a fast learner!

 

Hmmm, weirdos, revolutionaries, and rogues. Here are some that pop to mind.

 

Under revolutionary:

Matt Dillon is who I think pushed the local food trend in Seattle.

 

I guess Mashiko falls under both revolutionary and rogue. He serves only sustainable fish and I think they are the only place in town to do so.

 

More on the rogue side of things, if you have a night sans kids, you could go for some offal at Radiator Whiskey.

 

And it doesn't get much weirder than Michael Hebb and Death over Dinner!

Thanks!!! Radiator Whiskey looks like a good place to stop for a snack. Do they not allow kids there? I will have to check with local Rogue Bun Lai of Miya's Sushi about Mashiko. He has made a name for himself on selling sustainable sushi.

 

Death over Dinner... That is a step too far.

Downtown is too pricey for true rogues and revolutionaries, but there are certainly unusual options.  I particularly like Japonessa, which does a latino sushi thing that actually works well.  If you're a purest, you'll hate it though.  South of downtown is a neighborhood called Georgetown, where there are a number of great, off-beat places, including Matt Dillon's Corson Building, Brass Tacks and Fonda la Catrina.


It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

The owner of Mashiko also has a burger joint in south Seattle called Katsu Burger.  I really like it, but its a heart attack on a plate, all the patties (regardless of meat choice) are battered and deep fried.

Nice! It is right by the Museum of Flight, which we will be hitting during the trip. I saw they only have 5 tables and 12 chairs. Is it hard to get a table? Do you know know if they have high chairs?

It's usually not hard to get in.  Don't know on the high chair question.
